Discovery Channel Celebrates the Life and Achievements of Lee Kuan Yew

Wazzup Pilipinas!

March 2015 marked the end of an era for Singapore, with the passing of former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew. Discovery Channel pays tribute to the man who is regarded as the founding father of modern Singapore in FATHER OF A NATION: LEE KUAN YEW, a one-hour special that celebrates his life and chronicles some of his greatest achievements. The programme will air on 24 March at 9pm.

In a matter of decades, Singapore has emerged from a rural backwater island and evolved into a bustling economic powerhouse. Despite its lack of natural resources, the country now stands proud as one of Asia's Tigers and this leap from third world to first can be attributed to one man - Lee Kuan Yew. 

Lee Kuan Yew was the first prime minister of Singapore, governing for three decades. He is also one of history's longest-serving ministers, holding successive ministerial positions spanning more than 50 years. Known for his foresight and leadership, the eloquent and outspoken politician is hailed as one of Asia's most influential figures and has been praised by other world leaders such as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel, and U.S. president Barack Obama.
FATHER OF A NATION: LEE KUAN YEW documents the story of how one man survived World War 2, took on the British Empire, struggled for independence and fought for the people and country that he loved.
